- What are cookies?
Also, the WEB will be able to know all the services requested by the users, in such a way that they will be able to facilitate or to offer information suitable to the tastes and preferences of each user.
- What types of cookies exist?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:
- “Session Cookies”:The first ones expire when the user closes the browser.
- “Persistent cookies“. The latter expire depending on when the target for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified in the services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on your target, cookies can be classified as follows:
- Performance cookies:This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you don’t have to reconfigure the service every time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:
- Volume adjustments of video or sound players.
- The video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.
- Geo-Localization cookies:These cookies are used to find out which country you are in when a service is requested. This Cookie is totally anonymous, and is only used to help orient the content to its location.
- Registration cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or has subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that if you close a service, your browser or your computer and at another time or another day you re-enter the service, you will still be identified, thus facilitating your browsing without having to re-identify yourself. This functionality can be deleted if the user presses the “logout” functionality, so this Cookie is deleted and the next time you enter the service the user will have to log in to be identified.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
- Analytical cookies:each time a user visits a service, an external vendor’s tool generates an analytic cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie that is generated only in the visit, will serve in next visits to the services of the Web to identify anonymously to the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow the anonymous identification of the Navigator users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate posting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
- Know if the user you are accessing is new or repeat visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify you. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize the experience of the users on the site.
- Behavioral Advertising Cookies:This type of “cookies” allows to extend the information of the ads shown to each anonymous user in the services of the Web. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the browsing patterns and/or user compartments is stored as they help to form an advertising interest profile. In this way, they allow to offer publicity related to the interests of the user.
- Third party advertising cookies: In addition to Web-managed advertising in its services, the website offers its advertisers the option to serve ads through third parties (“Conservers”). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the Web services from the users ‘ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them. Example:
